'Ello fellow inmates. In this strange time of uncertainty, fear and loss and we just want to say a huge thanks to the NHS and everyone that has been risking their lives to keep us fed, watered and most importantly safe! You are all absolute legends and we send all our love and good vibes to you.
So yeah, with prospect of a UK lockdown fast approaching we booked up our rehearsal room for one last huzza, which ended up being on the weekend before Bozza Jozza shut up shop for good! As a result we thought we'd record as many live demos and vids as we could, 'cos who knows when we'll be able to play together again innit!
The first of those is a track I just wrote at the start of all this madness called...Virus! We've all had the joyous supermarket panic experience. Anyway we'll be putting this and another four, warts and all first on on our Soundcloud page, then with vids on our Youtube page once i've got around to polishing the proverbial turds and adding the de-age filter.
Hope you enjoy them and more importantly hope to see you soon. Love to all and stay safe! xx
And for those of you who ain't got a clue who we are (everyone except our WAGS I assume) we are 3 old friends who are actually old and used to play in a band together back in the heady days of New Rave (you can work that shit out no doubt Dave).
Anyone who knows me will know I worship at the alter of Damon Albarn and anything he touches. He can do no wrong (exept for absolutely NOTHING). My favourite album is Modern Life is Rubbish by Blur and I doubt that is ever likely to change. That gives you a pretty good idea of the flex we're on, but you can basically sum it us as a mix of Brtipop like Blur, Oasis, Pulp, Longpigs and Supergrass, through angsty, loud stuff like Radiohead and Nirvana to potentially slightly controversial stuff like early Jamiroquai, Cardigans and my main boy, Stevland Morris
Current bands I think are super vibe-worthy are: The Beths, Beach Baby, Boy Azooga, Sports Team and not forgetting our good friend the amazing Zuzu!
We've featured twice as the BBC Introducing track of the day and since then have been working hard to get a demo album ready to release, each with its own Volpi-produced video featuring graphics by the fair hand of my sweetest babu' Selene! Vibe on Volpi! xx
